Mara Keisling Legacy Society

Mara Keisling speaking at the Capitol Building

Mara Keisling achieved a significant milestone for the trans rights movement when she founded NCTE in 2003, positioning an advocacy voice for transgender and non-binary people everywhere in Washington, D.C., the seat of federal policymaking. Since its creation, NCTE has grown into a political powerhouse which has forged strong relationships with policy makers at all levels of government including presidents, members of Congress, governors, and administrative agencies.

One of the most powerful ways to ensure that effective policy change can be carried out for generations to come, regardless of who holds political office, is to support the National Center for Transgender Equality through a gift in your will. It’s an incredible way to invest in the future of trans rights, without any cost to you today. Become a part of our family today by making a planned gift and joining the Mara Keisling Legacy Society!

To confirm your membership in the Mara Keisling Legacy Society, please contact a member of NCTE’s Development Department, at [email protected], to let us know you have dedicated a charitable bequest to NCTE in your will.

Become a part of our perpetual family today by making a planned gift and joining the Mara Keisling Legacy Society!
